Is that spring I see?

My favourite suede Aldo wedges are currently in repair as I have already worn the bottom of the heel and it needs replacing. Apparently I walk too much. I walk everywhere actually, when I'm not taking public transit that is. I've actually never made an effort to learn how to drive in four years...

Anyways, since it was sunny today and no rain was in the forecast, I decided to wear a pair of heels that has been very neglected. The pink shoes shown in the second photo are from Payless (I bought them a couple of years ago). They're not the most comfortable when worn alone, as they're not real leather and tend to scrape my toes a bit. But worn with tights, they were good to go for the whole day.

I actually styled this outfit around the shoes, wondering what I could finally wear with them. I'm wearing a puffed-sleeve peplum jacket that my grandmother made for my birthday last summer with thrifted shirt, skirt, belt and Roots tights.

By the way, I've been featured on Refinery 29 today! When Megan contacted my asking for spring outfits I'm looking forward to wearing, I assumed that they were going to make a post about various up and coming bloggers sharing their style. But boy was I shocked to find little old me on the same page with the likes of Rumi, Susie, Jane et al. I feel so out of my league. I'm gobsmacked. But so flattered!





I also tried one of the ties mentioned in the previous post with clothes I was wearing today just for fun. Kevin wanted to take the first photo in his messy storage room. I have no idea why. Go figure.

I love the color scheme oof the outfit. The heels are cute, but that amazing belt is the real star. I'm glad you got a chance to wear the tie, too--it's so cool.

I saw that on Refinery 29, so I just had to come look. But did you know you are featured on Shoewawa.com today as well?

Love the blog, especially love those Aldos (the poor things) - how high is the heel? And I love the shoes you have today - perfectly nude and peachy. And can't believe they are from Payless!! Though Payless clothes do kill my feet too :)

Will be back!

That jacket and outfit are very cool, the fact that the jacket is original is even cooler. And congratulations for being featured on refinery, how cool!
